Polly Brunkhardt: To further the mission of the FBI is why we did it. The end result is that we did put a human face on the FBI for these people, and they’ve now become the agency’s biggest fans, as am I.
Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau, and this “FBI, This Week.” Polly Brunkhardt is a recipient of the Director’s Community Leadership Award for making a difference in the lives of children in a Kansas City soccer league. She spearheaded an effort to rebuild the league’s field, which had fallen into disrepair.
Brunkhardt: To give them a positive outlet for their energies because there are so many things that they’re exposed to every day on the streets related to crime and gang-ridden activities. It was a monumental effort, but so worth it because the difference that we made in that park was just absolutely phenomenal.
Halpern: Thanks for listening to “FBI, This Week.”
